    This is awesome but also looks a bit scary in a way that anyone going too far in might just crash on that wall or that hydrofoil that creates the wave. And then there is crashing too hard into the cement floor.

    Great video. I just wonder what kind of engine powers that thing and what the fuel consumption might be 🙂

    What’s dragging the foil? Is it a motorized system or pulleys that make it move?
